As a lot of you know, I'm spending the summer in Germany. (If you don't know...surprise!) So, I'm jumping on the blog bandwagon--I hope it'll be fun, for you and for me.
First, a few details about Germany:
1) I'll be in Bonn, doing research at the university there. My project is on the immune response to Listeria monocytogenes, a really gnarly bacteria that causes food-poisoning, so I'll be growing bacteria and doing animal experimentation and all sorts of other fun things. I'm so excited!
2) I'll be gone from June 1st until August 5th, so I'll be out of contact except by internet. Skype me if you love me!
3) I'm so beyond excited about this--I've never been to Germany, and I don't speak a whit of German, except for "the ball is red", which is oh-so-helpful for daily life. So it'll be an adventure of epic proportions.
4) If I know you, I miss you already. Please skype me. Let me know if you need my skype name, and then I can call you!
Now, one thing you should know about the blog. This is, as the title says, a blog of discontinuity. Hopefully, there'll be a lot of things that will be entertaining and interesting: silly things, random things, funny things, deep things, and things that make you question my sanity. I'm going to try and put up every little, mundane detail of my life in Germany so that I can remember, and I hope I can make it entertaining.
I leave in 16 days.
